if  you want to close the database.

Yatin, he wants to close 1.mdb from 2.mdb

I'm sure jadedata knows some uber secret KEYS that will do this.

try

Dim oDB As Database

    Set oDB = Workspaces(0).OpenDatabase("c:\databases\1.mdb")
   oDB.Quit

By what process are 1.mdb and 2.mdb opened?

You could do the following if you want to close 1.mdb from 2.mdb


In 1.mdb create a module with the following code

public sub CloseMyDB()
   docmd.quit
end sub

Inside of 2.mdb when you are in code view, go to tools, references on the menu. Add 1.mdb
Now you can call CloseMyDB from anywhere in 2.mdb

Let me know if this works, I am pulling this from memory as I do not have Access on this pc.

Good Luck!

Hi dialdnet,

I have tried this but it closes 2.mdb.

i changed the module to code firstly to

    Dim db As database
    Set db = currentdb
    db.Close

which, when called from a button click did nothing

and then

   Dim db As database
    Set db = OpenDatabase("d:\tempdbs\db1.mdb")
    db.Close

the path specified being to the open db but this also did nothing. Any idea how to specify the db i want to close.

Many thanks (also to the others who have suggested things)
Nev.
